The history of this fabulous museum is deeply rooted in the history of its city, Boca Raton. The Boca Raton Museum of Fine Art has been accredited to being the “cultural impact” that has influenced other small towns to showcase such levels of fine art. The museum dates back to the late 1940’s, when a local group of lady socialites came together to form the town's first organization, a civic club, with the goal to build a small library. They soon offered an open house in their “library” which showcased an exhibition of borrowed paintings, loaned to them by friends with a great collection as well as other local galleries from Miami to Palm Beach. Over 1,000 locals came out to support the open house and the love of fine art. From here the women formed the “Art Guild of Boca Raton” was born.
Years later the Boca Raton Museum of Fine Art has grown exponentially. They now offers classes, educational programs and tons of fabulous, rotating exhibitions every few months.
